Yes, I did a lot of driving out on the old Banks Hiway..in the 70s on a job I had out of radio..but I was still involved in the biz…I went by that place…the old transmitter site…I stopped and stared that thing down several times…I couldnt read the faded CALL SIGN very well and one time I went out there with a pair of binoculars..to read it and finally got it.. KWAY…the Smitty’s TV was readable alright but the callsign was terribly faded…and the tower was rusted up pretty bad in the 70s !! Cows werer grazing out there..

Looked like something out of a Twilight Zone or Outer Limits episode…

I would think that site has got to be long gone by now ?
